Too Good to be True, or Good enough not to be False?

Too good to be True?

Living your life with this phrase in mind in today’s World will probably protect you from being ripped off in any deal you do. ‘Too good to true’ opportunities are still encountered though and even though the phrase is uttered again and again and everyone knows it, some people still get sucked in and lose a lot of money. At the root of it all, you may not like to hear it if you’ve been suckered yourself is:


People are Greedy. There, i’ve said it. ‘Something for nothing’ is a dream that everyone has, but of course it’s all BS. There’s no such thing as ‘Something for Nothing’. People who get suckered by Too Good To Be True schemes usually end up with ‘Not Much For A Lot’.

Why is it that when people leave school, they decide that they don’t need to learn anymore? They’re done with learning, they’ve spent their formative years in education and they aren’t going to do it any more. That’s it, Finished. However, in this early part of the 21st Century, progress is so rapid and when you stop learning, you effectively go backwards.

The people who continue to learn storm past those who have declared themselves ‘out’ and have more successes because the others aren’t standing still. You snooze, you lose has never been more appropriate. Of course, the people who quit are the first to complain about their situation. Low wages, poor working conditions, jobs they hate, no prospects, living on handouts. Do I need to go on?

The World is now The Matrix.

We are all plugged in and this is where fortunes are made these days. But, if you jumped off the education bus early and declared you ’know enough’, you’ll never, ever be in a position to benefit because you just won’t know how to do it. The Matrix just takes money off you for your mobile phone contract and your cable TV subscription.

Living life that way, ‘too good to be true’ opportunities are an apparent way out. Someone on Facebook (who you’ve never met, but looks legit) offers you the opportunity to make $5,000 over the weekend by buying and selling Bitcoin. What could be simpler? You quit educating yourself 10 years ago. Someone told you you could earn $5,000 over the weekend, who needs education?

You see this ad on Facebook and it’s ‘Too good to be true’ you see. You never see any return from this and lose your ‘investment’ ($300, $500?). Wish you’d kept learning?

It’s not too late, in fact it’s never too late to change.

It’s Never Too Late to Change Your Career, even at 40 and 50 years old.


Wind back the clock, re-program your brain and recognise that you must go back to educating yourself. You have only penalised yourself by opting out. If you want to keep up with the modern World, you must realise that the future of ecommerce and retailing is totally online. High street shops are dying, they’re a busted flush. Who wants to pay ground rent and business rates and property leases these days?

The death of the High Street is a big opportunity for you

No, modern retailers operate online and are willing to pay affiliates a commission to sell their products for them. You can help sell absolutely anything. For example, any product listed by Amazon can be sold by an affiliate (you?). That’s right, you can get commission for selling other people’s products and receive money, without bothering yourself with stock management, shipping, returns, payment handling or marketing. You can earn money from home, without any of the hassles big business brings. Nearly every major retailer has an affiliate program of some kind that can be used to earn money. Many thousands of retailers and billions of products in every conceivable niche.

How Good is That????

All you need to do is set up an account with Amazon Associates and start promoting products on your website. For every one that results in an order at Amazon, you’ll be paid a percentage.

But,I hear you say, you can’t do that because you don’t have a website. You don’t know how to go about setting one up or how to gain traffic or market yourself. You don’t have a clue about affiliate marketing, how it works or how to implement it. Well, it’s time to start up your education again!

  1. Dave, you are so right about people falling for the “too good to be true” and the latest “shiny object”. I totally am with you in that scams abound online today. The idea of getting something for very little effort is so wrong. Success is certainly possible, but in my opinion and experience, success is the result of lots of training and hard work. I’m with you that the training and opportunity a person can get from Wealthy Affiliates (WA) is the real deal – and it takes the willingness to learn and to implement what you learn and the effort to spend time and hard work to achieve success. Wealthy Affiliate’s (WA) training is state-of-the-art and is continually being upgraded and added to. Add to that the excellent hosting platform and the helpful and giving community, its a great road to online success. Sure, there is a cost, but you can take advantage of paying advance and specials to decrease your monthly fees to only $25 – a real deal and less than the cost of a dinner out nowadays. Thanks for your article – Shirley
